Descripción

1p., 12mo. Attractively printed within a decorative border, on the recto of the first leaf of a bifolium. The letter reads: 'Dear Sir | The Specimen Book sent you herewith, of which I have much pleasure in asking your acceptance, contains a history of the Caslon Foundry printed with the justly celebrated types engraved by its founder in the early part of last Century. | It has been undertaken less from business motives than from a desire to produce a work of literary interest, and I venture to hope it may be deemed worthy of a place in your library.' The date and Smith's signature are the only manuscript additions. Smith purchased the Foundry from the Caslon family in 1873. N° de ref. de la librería 14673
